When I was in sixth grade, I bought a lime green mood-changing lipstick for $1.25. It painted my mouth a heinous hot pink. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at the time, but I think my mom let me wear it as a punishment because it was so horrible.
So you can understand my apprehension when I read about Urban Outfitters‘ new mood-changing lipsticks. The five pastel shades are supposed go on extremely sheer in varying degrees of pink and leave lips moisturized. All that being said, I’m still having a difficult time thinking of Urban as a beauty emporium. Would you try mood-changing lipstick? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
Fashion falsity #1,434: Nautical goods are for the spring and summer. So very untrue. Sure, they evoke the festive spirit of the warmer months, but we always find that a cute sailor-ly touch here and there can spruce up any old outfit. Try, for example, these simple anchor post earrings from Urban. Pop these on and pair with a boxy, cropped blazer, grandma chic-style, or go all-out with some Breton stripes.
NPR is a national producer of radio programming that dorks (well, hip dorks) like to proclaim their love for because they think it makes them look smart and cool. And maybe it does.
True NPR fanatics may own apparel or merchandise purchased directly from the organization as a sign of real devotion. We’re sure they’d be offended to see that now Urban Outfitters is selling their own version of an NPR shirt, officially outing the station as a hipster marker. So will all those people who are hipsters but say they aren’t now think twice about professing their love for public radio? [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
How adorable are these tree ornaments from Urban Outfitters? I don’t even celebrate Christmas and they make me want to decorate a tree. Choose from cutesy food designs of cupcakes, sushi rolls, TV dinners, or a sparkling pickle (this one’s for you, Snooki). Other cheeky items to spruce up your tree include unicorns, beer cans, owls, and mustaches (to each their own, we suppose). [$8-20, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
While the customized movement in fashion makes us think we’re getting something special and personalized, too often it leaves us wanting more (we guess you could call that entitlement). For those who like things “just so,” there’s now Urban Outfitters‘ new custom makeup color mail-in program, which is just as awesome as it sounds. Looking for a lipstick to match your favorite dress? A gloss in the same shade as that sunset you snapped outside your window? A hue (that no one makes) to complement your go-to nail polish? Keep reading »
This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of items.

As far as apparel goes, products seem to fall into three categories: Keep reading »
